Last of the ATC's & student work

These are the last photos of the Artist trading cards that I made to swap with my students. I won't go into detail again about how I made them, but if you want to know just post a comment!



I made little envelopes for all the cards out of photos from old National Geographic images and sealed them all with copper sealing wax and impressed my initials into it with a metal embossing medallion that I got while I was in Sienna, Italy and have been dying to use! The envelopes will protect the dimensional elements.

These are the cards made by one of my students, Sue McIntyre. You will have to click on the image to see it larger. Truly beautiful.
We are talking about doing another round of these for the end of the course in May -will have to wait to see how many takers we have.
Enjoy!

Sharon,
It's so nice to see your mixed media work...and your other projects. The scarf and jewellery are absolutely stunning.

These cards are just so amazing! What a great idea - and I can see many paintings originating from each and every one.

But.....I really do want to know the process (size, material etc)

Thanks Sharon....inspiring as always.
